    Reading the article, my first reaction was, sure use what works. Don’t use that which doesn’t, and so, do no harm. There was only a momentary intrusion of thoughts about all the exceptions and how complicated it all is, before the simple truth brings it back. For me, do no harm is the flip side of use what works.
